Our beloved friend and colleague, Eddie de Beer, passed away suddenly on Monday, 7 August.   He had been in hospital the previous week for some tests but was back at the office keen and chipper and ready to work.  He looked well and chatted to everyone.  He died in his office doing what he loved.  Eddie has been a valued and essential part of our team for 20 years.  He had a warm relationship with each member of staff and was generous with his time and knowledge, always ready to dispense cough sweets, advice and kindness.  He will be sadly missed and remembered fondly by all at the office.  Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
